XY Graph

(Not recommended) Display XY plot of signals using MATLAB figure window

This version of the XY Graph block is not recommended. Use the XY Graph block in the Sinks library instead. For more information, see Compatibility Considerations.

Description

The XY Graph block displays an XY plot of its inputs in a MATLAB® figure window.

The block has two scalar inputs. The block plots data from the first input (the x direction) against data from the second input (the y direction). (See Port Location After Rotating or Flipping for a description of the port order for various block orientations.) This block is useful for examining limit cycles and other two-state data. Data outside the specified range does not appear.

A figure window appears for each XY Graph block in the model at the start of simulation.

Note

The XY Graph block does not support stepping back in a simulation.

Input

Plot input as x values on an X-Y plot. See Port Location After Rotating or Flipping for a description of the port order for various block orientations.

Data Types: `single` | `double` | `int8` | `int16` | `int32` | `int64` | `uint8` | `uint16` | `uint32` | `uint64` | `Boolean` | `fixed point`

Plot input as y values on an X-Y plot. See Port Location After Rotating or Flipping for a description of the port order for various block orientations.

Data Types: `single` | `double` | `int8` | `int16` | `int32` | `int64` | `uint8` | `uint16` | `uint32` | `uint64` | `Boolean` | `fixed point`

Parameters

Specify the minimum x-axis value. Data below the minimum x is ignored.

Programmatic Use

 Block Parameter: `xmin` Type: character vector Values: real number Default: `'-1'`

Specify the maximum x-axis value. Data above the maximum x is ignored.

Programmatic Use

 Block Parameter: `xmax` Type: character vector Values: real number Default: `'1'`

Specify the minimum y-axis value. Data below the minimum y is ignored.

Programmatic Use

 Block Parameter: `ymin` Type: character vector Values: real number Default: `'-1'`

Specify the maximum y-axis value. Data above the maximum y is ignored.

Programmatic Use

 Block Parameter: `ymax` Type: character vector Values: real number Default: `'1'`

Specify the time interval between samples. To inherit the sample time, set this parameter to `-1`. For more information, see Specify Sample Time.

Programmatic Use
